English as a Second Language


ACADEMIC AND PROFESSIONAL ENGLISH FOR MULTILINGUAL STUDENTS

WELCOME! 

COVID 19 UPDATE: We will be modifying in-person instruction after Spring Break (March 16-20). We will still offer you support through remote (on-line) courses, tutoring and workshops. We are here for you! We will post updates after the break on this website and on your course Canvas websites. With patience, communication and innovation, we can adjust to this temporary situation.

AB 705 UPDATE: Know your linguistic rights! All students have the right to access English as a Second Language instruction for college credit, and you must be informed of this right.

Our department successfully serves students who speak English in addition to another language by addressing some of the specific challenges that multilingual students face in an academic environment. We offer embedded tutors, a Success Center, a language laboratory and professors who are trained in linguistic theories. All of our courses provide college credit, and several of our courses are UC and CSU transferrable. We offer the highest quality of instruction, accelerated programs, and a wide-range of classes. Please use the information on this website to learn more about our program and our faculty.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS PROGRAM, PLEASE COMPLETE THE SELF-REPORT (SRT) AND GUIDED PLACEMENT TOOL (GPT) THROUGH THE ASSESSMENT WEBSITE OR CONTACT ONE OF OUR FACULTY MEMBERS.

 

PARKING: Daily permits are $2.00 and should be displayed, number side up, on the dashboard. This permit is valid only in white-lined student stalls. Parking Lots 6, 7, and 8 are close in distance to LA-103.
